He compares different investor types in their fund preferences, home bias and investor responses to market shocks. Further, he determines returns by investor type and the effect of external advisors on fund investment returns. The author analyses the role of risk-taking when choosing VC funds and, in a unique investigation, the role of the proximity of the investor to the fund. His analysis sheds light on the intransparent private equity market and highlights the significance of the close investor-fund interaction for investment success.
